In the dog days of the summer when the rivers are crowed and the trout aren't rising, it's sometimes fun to take a little break and try something different. I love bass fishing so it's super fun for me to go fish for small mouth bass in the highcountry. Sometimes the fishing can be spectacular. I usually just use a hopper dropper set up or small jig style flies. Here's a couple shots of Andy Burk and i picking on some small mouth in a lake near Truckee.
